Llama treats?


Does anyone know what kind of "treats" a llama would like, I have a 3 year old wild guy I'm trying to tame down. He doesn't appear to like grain. He will take hay from my hand. Is there something else like apples, carrots, greens that he may like?

Is there anything else I should AVOID because it is unsafe for llamas??

Thanks
T

Try these all the llamas I know have loved them and they are easy to make.

Llama Cookies
1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup molasses



Mix ingredients in bowl as listed. Make balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or golden brown in color. I found the dough very “goopy” so I rolled it in plastic wrap in a roll about the size of a quarter and partially froze it so that it would slice off in neat little rounds, like refrigerator cookies. Works very well.

Tip: I found that sometimes 15 minutes is not long enough so I lower the heat to 250 and leave them in the oven until they are hard. You may have to turn them a few times also.

Be sure to break them into small pieces when feeding them to your llamas as they could choke on a large piece

Hmm, taming a wild one, eh?

Stay away from poisonous plants like Rhododendrons and the like, but you can try blackberry branches (if you're able to get to any). I have yet to see a llama reject blackberry branches -- they eat them, thorns and all!

What kind of grain were you using? I know our llamas won't eat horse grain but absolutely gobble up sheep ration. I'm not too sure what the differences are, though.

The cookies sound like a good idea, but wild llamas may have different tastes, and you've already said he didn't like the grain, so I would try for plants or things that a wild llama would be more familiar with, such as blackberry bushes.

Try Rye-Krisp crackers. chopped carrots or chopped apples.

Pelleted foods (like rabbit food) are also good treats. We've used both of these training goats.
